in northern virginia, technology and defense jobs, and using them as pawns to a demand higher taxes or a budget deal. now, these are tough times, but out of adversity, we can create a more confident, caring, and prosperous america, and that is a positive agenda i will forward to discussing today, and the ida is what is best for the virginia businesses. >> governors, thanks to both of you. this is a high-profile senate race for the nation, certainly very important for the commonwealth, and it is also occurring in the shadow of the presidential debate, so i want to ask you about 47% we heard about this week. governor romney in summer marks at a fundraiser taped earlier this year talked about how there is some 47% of the people that do not pay federal income tax. he said that he believes they are -- that they feel they are victims, that the government needs to take care of them, and that they are entitled to housing, you name it. part of that 47 percent said. what would you do about that? do you think that should change? and what do you think, generally, about too many virginians, too
. a footnote, this might be a pyrrhic victory for the defense if they win because even if they win with the summers issue, the government can still argue that it was a legitimate, they had a reasonable suspicion, and, therefore the evidence obtained could still be admissible. i was asked to talk about another case which is a case -- >> why don't you take a minute and a half? >> maryland vs. king, and the question is here to the liberty of the state and federal laws that allow for the collection of swabs of cells from the insides of mouths of people who have been arrested. there as 27 states who have laws allow officers to swab the inside of any mouth of anybody arrested, and that gets put into the system who helps to identify the person, but also connect them to other crimes. in this case in maryland, king was arrested for burglary, swabbed, it comes back with a hit for a case involving rape. the court of appeals ultimately found it should have been suppressed, thereby invalidating the law in maryland which is the law in 26 other states allowing that swabbed people are arrested. th
as the world's policeman. i do believe in a strong national defense, but the optimum word is defense, not offense. we do not have the money to continue the wars. our money could be more wisely spent here at home. >> todd akin. >> it is important to have a foreign policy to start with. you have to have some basic principles, the guidelines. that needs to an acute -- include iraq, afghanistan, a whole lot of other countries as well. the problem is we have not had that. what it seems like the vacillating policies we have almost punished our friends and helped our enemies. we decided to turn our backs on two of our allies, the czech republic and poland. we had plans to build missile defense. we gave that is a concession to russia. how much has russia helped us with iran? how much has russia helped us with the situation in afghanistan? giving special attention to chavez and turning our back on netanyahu when he wanted to meet with the president, the sending of mixed signals is very destructive to foreign policy. in the case of egypt, for instance, we talked a little bit about that in a pr
these political games for the armed services. we need to have a strong economy and national defense. but the last thing we need to be doing is having these devastating cuts to our military readiness and that's what has to happen is stop these devastating cuts, come up with the cuts that have the right priority and make sure the men and women protecting our safety and our freedoms here have the best armments, the best equipment and making sure we get those good paying jobs and technology and defense here in virginia and not use then am a pon to raise taxes. >> no one's talking about using the military or veterans as pons, i mean, i haven't heard that stated except george kind of throw in that charge at me and that's the kind of charge that you ought to be more careful about. i take second to no one in appreciating the service of our folks in active service and in our military i was governor in the middle o two wars. our virginia guards people, 1,500 of them deployed. i went to the deployments and the wakes in afghanistan and i celebrate the fact that all units are home. we have to get to a resolve
-sector capacity building, including investment in strong as ever defense protections and work- force training. for tickets, industry and government have worked together to protect the physical security of critical assets that reside in private hands. airports and seaports to national broadcast systems and nuclear power plants. there is no reason why we cannot work together in the same way to protect the cyber 62 systems of our core critical infrastructure upon which so much of our economic well-being, national security, and the lives depend. in the current landscape, we execute cybersecurity missions under an amalgam of existing statutory and executive authorities that need to be updated, clarified, and streamlined. the plain fact is we must address cyber security now, not years from now, and dhs is committed to working with all affected parties to move forward quickly on this issue. in the meantime we are moving forward on building our own world-class cybersecurity team and a strong dependable work force pipeline for the future. where making investments in the cyber workforce to growing our
we must consider these cuts to our $70 billion green defense budget. and president obama is saying, it was working so well. and the submarine saying -- strike the solar panels. if you look closely, it is the u.s.s. inconvenient truth. this primary season was one of the most exciting, most interesting because they did not want mitt romney. they wanted santorum? really? so here is the elephant running away, and he is saying, "something like this could make a lesser fellow question his inevitability." and this is the front-runner. there is mitt. [laughter] steve day one of the most impassioned -- he is sort of right of center -- is that fair? he gave a great endorsement yesterday. a lot of people in the republican party really question the sky. he is in michigan. and he would start his speeches, it is good to be back in michigan. where all the trees are the same size. height. -- right height, i'm sorry. what? maybe he can explain that. >> it is a different kind of homey, though. [laughter] going back to obama's small businesses being crushed -- he is saying, you did not build that. an
the sacrifices for us. my concern when it comes to defense is we're headed to a fiscal cliff. we're looking at sequestration. we're looking at $500 billion in cuts to the department of defense. with sequestration, if that happens, that is another $500 billion. we're looking at the smallest army since 1950, the smallest air force ever. that cannot happen. we need to make a commitment to our military. when you have the director of the department of defense, the secretary, saying this is a bullet to the head, this is devastating, he will take whatever he can get. we're at a fiscal cliff, and these cuts to our defense are at the forefront of it. >> your balanced budget amendment will take the sequester and multiply it by at least seven. the cuts that would be imposed -- hearing slogans in support of the veterans, but the amendment will not support it. neither presidential candidate -- 80% have never served in the military, and when it comes to the time when they come home, it matters. >> i thank you for your service to our country. but i believe everyone would make a sound decision, and it woul
with the liability problems so doctors have to practice defensive medicine. let's make sure that 18% of the cost of health care which goes into paperwork, we require insurance companies to have only one form in medicare. 1% of the population uses 20% of the cost. let's make sure they're taken care of and be able to have managed care. we could change this, we could make health care affordable and accessible and obamacare doesn't to that. >> representative baldwin? >> you know, the last thing we need moving forward is to have tommy thompson and others rip up the affordable care act, throw it out and have more years of partisan bickering over this. it is high time that we pull together across the party aisle and put this into full effect and make it work for america and wisconsinites. the effect of tommy thompson ripping up this health care law is very concerning to so many who have already benefited and people who know they will. young people are now on their parents' health insurance up to age 26. i was in a classroom at u.w. oshkosh the other tai and i asked students to raise their hands if they
things, not just going after entitlements cut domestic spending, defense, but also to raise taxes? you need to do all those things, do you feel? >> we need to do whatever it takes to solve this problem, and that probably takes all of these things. overall, you have to deal with this whole problem, and is once you have cancer, just living in denial, which is the best way to describe how we are living now, it gets worse, and that is happening every day. if you look at these charts that we have distributed over the country, and people going from city to city, talking directly, and i can hear in my home town they will be talking in the next few days, directly to the people, and we need to get the american people alive and alert, because the typical person running for office is gone to do what ever it takes to get their vote. i do not think he has any sense at all that they want this fixed. if we have that at the grass- roots level, he would have these people with different personalities, being reborn, and they would be out on the campaign trail. >> both parties are responsible for our curr
